Pet Umbrella Keeps Your Canine Companion Covered


Raindrops keep falling on my pet... no more! The rather blandly named Pet Umbrella is just what you and your raincoat-hating dog have always wanted.

The Pet Umbrella is made by Lieben, a Japanese "direct wholesale umbrella manufacturer specializing in cheap price high-quality generic products!" - or so they say. The umbrella is made from transparent plastic that allows you to see what your pet's up to while preventing your pampered pet from feeling claustrophobic. Navy blue trim adds a dash of style!





The design of the Pet Umbrella is more common sense than a product of applied ingenuity: sort of like a regular umbrella that you point down rather than up, with the shielding part reversed.

The end of the umbrella also features an attached adjustable-length leash to keep Fido or Fifi from straying from the circle of dryness. 





The Pet Umbrella is shaped a little strangely - more oval than circular when open. It measures 42cm (almost 17") long from grip to tip, and when unfurled the "dome" is 70cm (28") by 52cm (21"). Keep the leash short and most medium to small pets should stay mainly dry in all but the heaviest weather!

You can order the Pet Umbrella from the product page - the listed price is 1,980 yen (about $21.50) including tax. (via Tokyomango)

Update: The pet umbrella is now available in the U.S. here.  It evens comes in a cute umbrella and coat set.

This is cool :) So many nice

This is cool :) So many nice things for pet owners this year. First, Obama gives us $3500 tax break per pet, then we get cheap pet health plans and now we get to spend all that we saved on a silly looking, luxury item like this.... Cool stuff!

Market research

Is there a need for this product though?
